When enabled (chrome.exe --enable-udd-profiles) hitting Ctrl+M brings dialog that allows to start another Chrome thread with different user profile. I use that on Windows Vista. Now I'm sitting on Windows 7 and I'm unable to make that work.

Could anyone confirm please whether that does work on Windows7?

--enable-udd-profiles right? – digitxp Sep 3 '10 at 13:44
oh yes, double-typo, i mean 'udd', sorry for that :) – Jaroslav Záruba Sep 4 '10 at 1:24

It seems like they've long removed this feature to keep things consistent. You can try using the UserProfile switch though: --user-data-dir="C:\Path\to\Profile"

thanks, i know of this switch, i just find Ctrl+M super-comfortable, now seeing they have removed this option makes wanna scream... why ffs? lately Chrome kinda pi**** me off :( – Jaroslav Záruba Sep 4 '10 at 1:33
With a new version coming out every 6 weeks, it should pi$$ you off less every month. – digitxp Sep 4 '10 at 1:45
Well, I don't suppose this shortcut will make it back. It is rather the 'wont-fix' attitude of Chromium developers sometimes what is annoying on this awesome browser: – Jaroslav Záruba Sep 4 '10 at 7:22
